You've Dazzled Us, Now Here is Your Cozy Chair
So, if you’ve purchased anything from ThinkGeek lately, you might have taken their outgoing survey, just a handful of questions, including a query into your favorite programming language. While stocking up on plushies, Brian Marick took the survey and scanned for his chosen language:
I scanned down to the Rs and was appalled to find that Ruby wasn’t listed, though Rebol and Rexx were and Python was just above them. But I later noticed that the list is not entirely alphabetical. Certain languages have been promoted to the front of the list: C, C++, Objective C, Perl, Java, ..., and Ruby. This is the big time, folks.
Very nice. Finally, a bit of recognition. Let’s not let ThinkGeek off easy, though. Please write and let them know that Ruby should be available as an answer to all the other survey questions as well. (Full story, noticed by Bil Kleb.)
